Zoom has just improved its security with the implementation of two factor authentication (2FA). The option could be defined as to use two means of verification before being able to identify yourself and access the account. After you enter your private password a key will be generated and it will be sent to you via SMS, phone call, or an application such as Google Authenticator or Microsoft Authenticator.
Zoom was considering different ways in which it could provide security to its users, they planned to give end-to-end encryption service for only paying customers and business accounts. But that’s not the case anymore.
If you use Zoom, you should already be able to activate two factor authentication (2FA) from the service preferences and this way you will avoid some security risks such as zoombombing, one of the most repeated attacks on Zoom accounts. One way or another, there a lot of videoconferencing applications and security is a really important factor considering that many people are working from their home.
